How to get there and back
Tenero can be reached by train, e.g. from Locarno or Bellinzona. It can be reached by car as well. From Locarno, you can take a train, bus or boat to wherever you'd like to go next. Please see here for details.
Be sure to look into passes that may come in handy for this day trip and your other activities in Switzerland.
You can find the route on the map on this page. We offer detailed directions as well:
- Exit the train station through the south side and turn right to follow the Via Tre Case to the lake. You'll walk through a tunnel under the motorway just before arriving at Lake Maggiore.
- Once at the lake, turn right and follow the path along the lake all the way to Locarno.
- In Locarno, be sure to take the path nearest to the lake rather than the street (see the map).
- Turn right into Viale Giuseppe Cattori to walk slightly uphill to the train station.
